Today for the first time ever I captured a 4K resolution picture. I don't know much about cameras or photography but I expected the picture to at least be sharp like usually high resolution pictures are.
But when I zoom in it gets pixelated. I would assume the total opposite. I thought a 4K picture would provide much better zoom capability than a standard DSLR picture or even a mobile phone picture for that matter. If I zoom in on that picture it looks like it was taken using a 10-year-old mobile phone.
What is wrong with what I am expecting or doing? I don't know how to explain the disappointment, but I do know that it's me missing something.
I am looking at the pic at 1600×900 resolution on a 17-inch notebook, if that matters. The picture itself is 3840×2160.
